A couple of quick notes, the numbers look better than they seem like they should. Opponent adjustments are based 100% on this year's results. As the year progresses and Indiana faces stiffer competition, the numbers from the game will likely come down.
Run Offense vs Indiana
Win for Indiana here as Michigan scored a +2 (two points better than the average team against Indiana) while Indiana scored a +8 (eight points better than the average team would allow to Michigan)
Carlos Brown +9 (includes receptions) #2 RB performance of the week
Brandon Minor +1
Michael Shaw -1Pass Offense vs Indiana
This one was a win for M. Michigan posted a +7 while Indiana posted a middle of the road -1.
Tate Forcier +7 #22 QB performance of the week
Denard Robinson +2
Martavious Odoms +6Run Defense vs Indiana
Another win for Indiana here, obviously. Despite Michigan poor job in previous games against the run, the Hoosiers still "beat the spread" going +2 against the Wolverine rush D while the D was 3 points worse against Indiana than the average team.
Darius Willis +4
Trea Burgess -3
Pass Defense vs Indiana
Indiana was actually below average passing against Michigan, with a -1 while Michigan was +4 vs the Indiana passing game.
Ben Chappell -1
Tandon Doss: +11 #6 WR performance of the week
T Turner +2Field Position
Based solely on drive starts, Michigan should have lost the game 30-27, indicating that the offense overachieved by 9 points and the defense underachieved by 3.Special Teams
Brian pointed this out right away but the ST were huge for Michigan this weekend. My punting stats are based on a net average with adjustments made for shorter punts that are downed deep in opponent territory. Zoltan's day was worth 2.5 points, a huge number for a punter and the 5th best tally for any punter in an FBS game this year. Overall, Michigan special teams had the 22nd best performance of the year, which is tough to do without returning a kick for a touchdown.Penalties
When Michigan was on offense, the effect of the penalties netted out to zero, despite Michigan getting hit with more yards.
Michigan picked up a single point of benefit when Indiana had the ball.
